Gift Guide For Her

This gift guide was definitely my favourite one to put together, as it features my current favourite fragrances, stunning jewellery, accessories and gift sets. I would consider all of these pieces quite luxurious, but I included options for budgets from £25 - £160.

Let's start with the beautiful Charlotte Tilbury Scent Of A Dream*(50ml,£68.00). The bottle is a real showstopper and the unique ‘floral chypre' fragrance is truly intoxicating. I get so many compliments when I wear it. It features top notes of  Lemon, Peach and Black Pepper, heart notes of Jasmine, Frankincense, Tuberose and Violet,  and the 'MAGIC MOLECULE' base notes of Fire Tree, Iso E Super, Patchouli and Ambroxan. It's a sensual, seductive scent and it's perfect for the evening and events.

Another stunning gift from Charlotte Tilbury - the Beauty Icons Gift Set*(£55.00). Containing five of Charlotte's best-selling iconic products, this selection is perfect for every beauty addict! The gift box comes with a full size Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk, Mini Full Fat Lashes Mascara, Mini K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Penelope Pink, Mini Charlotte's Magic Cream Moisturiser (15ml) and a Mini Wonderglow Face Primer (15ml). It would be an amazing gift for anyone who is a fan of Charlotte's products already, but also a great way to introduce someone to her incredible formulas. And it comes in the most beautiful packaging as well and feels so, so luxurious!

Next, we have the fragrance everyone is talking about - Mon Guerlain*! It is currently available in this gift set with a huge saving at only £94.50, so you basically pay for the 100ml bottle and get the 30ml bottle free. Fantastic! 

The Guerlain 'Mon Guerlain' eau de parfum gift set* comes in a simple box, but it's all about the contents! The 100ml bottle will look incredible on your dressing table and the 30ml is ideal for your handbag. I always have a fragrance in my bag, so this is perfect. 

The fragrance itself is stunning and I reviewed it here, but just to remind you, it features notes of Carla Lavender from Provence, Sambac jasmine from India, Santalum Album sandalwood from Australia and Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea. It is feminine, sensual and absolutely gorgeous and every single time I wear it, I get compliments and questions about the scent. If you haven't tried it yet, I would highly recommend adding it to your Christmas wishlist asap!

You can also get the scent in a lovely 50ml Mon Guerlain Gift Set with a Scented Candle (£70.00) which contains: a 50ml bottle of Mon Guerlain EDP and a 75g candle which smells incredibly strong! Perfect for cosy winter evenings.

Not everyone is into beauty, so I have a few other options. Let's start with the Stella & Dot Clutch*(£50.00). Featuring a crosshatch pattern, this textured envelope clutch is perfect for any occasion. The black and white design makes it very versatile and you can add a chain strap to it and turn it into a cross body bag. It is also 100% Vegan and holds up to 6 credit cards, fits an iPhone or iPad mini and has gorgeous lining inside and gold hardware.

I got this gorgeous Missoma Single Gold Arrow Earring (£25.00) for my friend who adores Missoma designs. I love how dainty it is and the design is perfect to wear with other earrings. It comes in a lovely gift box as well and you just can't go wrong with real gold jewellery. I really want to treat myself to some Missoma now.

The Stella & Dot Knot Bangle*(£32.00) is also a great classic option. It's gold plated, but it is such a timeless piece. Simple and elegant.

And if your loved one is into stunning arm candy - the Daniel Wellington Classic Petite Melrose 32mm with Rose Gold Cuff Gift Set* (£159.00) will definitely tick all the boxes. The mesh strap has been super popular this year and it goes so nicely with the cuff and the white dial. I have it with a black dial as well and also in silver and I must admit - these are my most worn time pieces of 2017 - so elegant and classy, I just can't get enough of this stunning design! And the gift set comes beautifully packaged, ready to be put under the tree, taking all the hard work out of gifting. Such a perfect present! 

You can still order it in time for Christmas, as DW use UPS delivery, so it's reliable and quick.

If you know someone who loves Giorgio Armani Si and you want to get them something similar, the Emporio Armani Because It's You*(£47.00) is a great option. I adore it! Very feminine, with notes of Raspberry, Rose Absolute and Vanilla Bean, it is sweet, fruity and absolutely delicious! And you can get it engraved as well! So special.

One of my all time favourite makeup products - the Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet in 401 Scarlatto*(£29.00) - any shade of this incredible formula is a winner in my eyes, but 401 is just stunning and it has been my most worn lip colour of 2017! It is a deep red with pink undertones and it makes my lips look amazing, my teeth appear whiter when I wear it and it lasts so well. I can't praise the formula of the lip magnets enough and I always recommend them to everyone! INCREDIBLE!

Another gorgeous makeup product which I think would make a great gift is the Urban Decay Naked Heat palette*(£39.50). Featuring warm copper hues and deep browns, it suits all skin tones and looks fabulous on the eyes. And the UD eyeshadow formula is my all time favourite when it comes to shadows.

So many stunning presents to choose from. I hope you like my suggestions.
